    How to configure a HA DataSource in JBoss 7.1 ?

    Xi CHEN Newbie

      Hello,

       

          We are currnently  migrating a JBoss 5 App to JBoss 7.1. But we have a problem with the DataSource Configuration:

          can't find the way to configure a HA DataSource (set two urls in connection-url) to treate the database failover case.

       

          In JBoss 5.1, we simply separating the Databases' URL with "|", characters as follows:

      <datasources>

        <local-tx-datasource>

          <jndi-name>MyDatabase</jndi-name>

          <use-java-context>false</use-java-context>

          <connection-url>

      jdbc:sqlserver://SQL_SERVER_ONE:1433;databaseName=MyDB;|jdbc:sqlserver://SQL_SERVER_TWO:1433;databaseNameMyDB</connection-url>

          <url-delimiter>|</url-delimiter>

          <driver-class>com.microsoft.sqlserver.jdbc.SQLServerDriver</driver-class>

          <databaseName>MyDB</databaseName>

          <user-name>USER_NAME</user-name>

          <password>USER_PWD</password>

          <check-valid-connection-sql>select COUNT(*) from VERSION

          </check-valid-connection-sql>

        </local-tx-datasource>

      </datasources>

       

      The following is my attempt which does not work in JBoss 7.1 :

       

      <datasource jndi-name="java:/MyDatabase" pool-name="MyPool" enabled="true" use-java-context="true" use-ccm="false">

          <connection-url>jdbc:sqlserver://SQL_SERVER_ONE:1433;databaseName=MyDB|jdbc:sqlserver://SQL_SERVER_TWO:1433;databaseName=MyDB</connection-url>

          <url-delimiter>|</url-delimiter>

          <driver>

              sqlserver

          </driver>

          <security>

              <user-name>USER_NAME</user-name>

              <password>USER_PWD</password>

          </security>

          <validation>

              <check-valid-connection-sql>

                  select COUNT(*) from VERSION

              </check-valid-connection-sql>

          </validation>

      </datasource>

      <drivers>

          <driver name="sqlserver" module="com.microsoft.sqlserver">

              <driver-class>

                  com.microsoft.sqlserver.jdbc.SQLServerDriver

              </driver-class>

          </driver>

      </drivers>

       

      I simply tried to separate the host and servername using "|" characters, just like in JBoss 5. But if I shutdown the first DB, it desn't try to make a new connection with the second DB url...

       

      Can anyone even point me in the right direction? Even an example of an ha xa datasource configuration would help.

       

      Thanks,
